You are welcome, Este. I think Jan lurks now and then, because she'll mention having seen something, but she's not a regular LJ visitor, not even to this one. Perhaps I'll make her a composite of her reviews. Her poems are so excellent, and, as you probably know, poetry is never as widely read as the fanfic. But I think Jan-u-wine's poetry succeeds as well as the best fanfic for portraying Frodo, especially his inner perspective on things. She seems able to portray him at a deep level and yet remain unobtrusive as the author. I never get the sense she is bludgeoning me with angst when her stuff is wrenchingly moving, and I never get the sense that she is showy when the passage is ultra-lovely and lyrical. She is able to step out of the way and simply paint with words so well, you just "see it." And, seeing it, you feel it.
